Legitimate uses for Bitcoin ?

Seems to me it's ransomware victims buying in and other criminal uses that are preventing the Bitcoin pyramid from collapsing, as victims buying in enables criminals to cash out. Does anyone know of any regular markets where goods and services are exchanged in the open using Bitcoin where there are not crooks involved or tax evasion ? Or have all or nearly all attempts at creating legitimate uses dried up ? I'd like to know, because if there are no genuine uses for Bitcoin, then it seems to me that the conventional currency for Bitcoin exchanges are in effect little more than money launderers.
